I hate ugly cork boards

I really do. They are just so bland and tan. Tan wood. Tan cork.  Blah. Why can't they be pretty?

My oldest, K, loves to collect photos, scraps of paper, other little odds and ends that are flat. So I thought  of this ugly old cork board I had in the basement. I wanted her to be able to pin stuff on it and also find a way to hold all of the headbands and necklaces she was accumulating. My sister was heading to  IKEA  so I went online looked around and asked her  to pick me up these four hooks for like $ 5.

  Then I had J screw them on to the front/bottom of the cork board before I sprayed it.  I took it and first sprayed it will 3 coats of white spray paint outside ( J helped so I could photograph and that other frame is for another project.)

Voila! Everything was now pretty and white.

I asked him to screw it to the backside/inside of her closet door so that she could reach everything but it wouldn't look all cluttered all the time.  I also had some of these awesome  jumbo pins we bought on a vacation ( long story) that were pink.

Now she has an awesome place to keep all of her paper/flat treasures and she can also get to all of her headbands so help get ready in the mornings.

Adios Ugly Cork Boards!  Hello pretty, clean, white cork boards!

We even have another one....hmm.... what can I do with that?
